Planned Giving

Thank you so much for your interest in learning about the many benefits of gift plans. Planned giving allows you to make a donation to the AETN Foundation that is mutually beneficial – it ensures good stewardship of your assets by increasing benefits for yourself and for your family while supporting quality educational programs and services at AETN that change lives!

Planned gifts generously given to the AETN Foundation are placed into our General Endowment unless directed differently by the donor(s). Earnings generated from investments are also used to grow the Endowment. This fund exists to help cover cost increases for purchasing national programs, to help fund local program production, and to help fund the expansion of new program and service ventures, while safeguarding against any potential decrease in operating funds.

If you have any questions, please call 1-800-662-2386. A member of our AETN Foundation team will be happy to help you.

Benefits of a bargain sale

  • Avoid capital gains tax on your charitable gift
  • Receive a tax deduction that will reduce your tax bill this year
  • Take the cash received from the sale and reinvest it to create future income, save for retirement, buy new property or achieve other financial goals
  • Help AETN Foundation further our important charitable work

How a bargain sale works

  1. You sell AETN Foundation your property for a price less than fair market value.
  2. You receive cash from the sale.
  3. You can take a charitable deduction for the value of your gift which is the difference between the fair market value of the property less the sale price.
  4. While you may owe some tax on the sale proceeds you receive from AETN Foundation, the charitable deduction from your gift could offset some, most or all of your capital gains taxes associated with the sale.

More on bargain sales

A bargain sale may be accomplished even if you have a mortgage on your property. Because relief from indebtedness can have tax implications, please consult with your tax advisor prior to completing a gift of a bargain sale.
